Im still missing them so much :( they are normally with me all year and only see their dad during the school year every other weekend but never for this long. i almost feel as if I'm going to be very depressed this whole summer.

Keep busy, and keep in touch with your boys. Send them fun little things, a letter puzzle they can put together to read, a small summer-fun gift basket, a decorated picture of their little sister, anything that you can think of to still be involved in their summertime. I know there is no substitute for them being with you, but if you still feel like you are able to be there for them it may help you to feel less depressed. Also, plan some fun activities with your daughter, try to think of things that you don't normally have the chance to do when your boys are home. Having some special one-on-one time with her will also make a difference in your mood. I think most importantly, remember that it is ok to feel depressed, it is a normal reaction to missing the boys, but it is not ok for that depression to take over your day!
